Marion, Iowa, is a "vintage uptown" type of community, and a part of the Cedar Rapids 
metro area. Our show is regional, one-day, intimate and purposeful, with the mission 
to be an event through which you will thrive. (Here, we're obligated to insert that 
we're volunteer-driven, admittedly hokey and maybe a more than a little mom-and-pop). 
There are no bands, there is no beer...our festival is about the art (we do, however, 
cop to felafel). 

We're one of the most artist-profitable festivals in he country! The Art Fair 
Source Book named the Marion Arts Festival among the Top 25 events in the nation
for 2012 (#17 in fine art; #24 in fine craft).
